A list of the best-ever British cars has been released with an iconic vehicle topping the poll.
The survey, which was carried out by Autocar, named Lotus as the most popular manufacturer, with seven of its models making the 100 best British cars list.
Jaguar and Ford also did well in the survey with both having six cars in the top 100, including the Jaguar D-type and the Ford Sierra RS Cosworth.
James Bond's favourite vehicle, the Aston Martin DB5, made the list, with the manufacturer having five vehicles in the top 100.
Here is Autocar's top 10 British cars:
- 10. Ford Escort Mexico
- 9. TVR Griffith
- 8. Aston Martin DB5
- 7. Jaguar XJ220
- 6. McLaren P1
- 5. Yamaha Motiv.E
- 4. Range Rover
- 3. Jaguar E-type
- 2. McLaren F1
- 1. Original Mini
The Mini was created by Sir Alec Issigonis and achieved worldwide fame in the 1960s being dubbed the first "classless car".
The vehicle was also successfully revived in 2003 by BMW, who produced a larger and more-powerful version of its predecessor.

It comes as little surprise that the original Mini has topped the list of all-time British greats.
It's such an iconic vehicle and represents a lot more than the British car industry; the Mini is associated with Great Britain around the world and, in many ways, it was ahead of its time.
